Sweet Things sock kit

  • Sweet things ...

    Late summer berries, the feeling of fresh wind on my face, the familiar, happy ache of tired feet after a long hike that takes me to new vistas. My child's hand in mine as we walk together.

    These socks are a joyous collaboration with Indigenous Two-Spirit designer Caroline Dick and bring to life the award-winning children's picture book, The Sweetest Kulu, written by acclaimed Inuit throat singer Celina Kalluk. The book tells the story of an Inuit newborn being welcomed into arctic landscapes and the sweet fierceness of a mother's love.

    These beautiful socks, Hiirnuqtuq (pronounced here-knock-tookh) are the centerpiece of the kit. They feature a simple slipped stitch pattern at the cuff that brings to life the places where mountain, sky and sea meet. Although the colorwork looks complex, it's easily created with slipped stitches and is designed for beginning sock knitters.

    Yarn & pattern kit are available, as well as luxe kits.

    See the tabs above for details on what's in each kit, as well as to read the story behind the sock design.

    $3 of each kit will be donated to True North Aid in recognition of Indigenous people of the arctic.

The sweetest kit

This whole kit is clearly assembled with love and respect. I'm so grateful to add this volume to my collection of children's books. And I cannot wait to cast on the socks: beautiful yarn and a pattern masterfully crafted, with just enough choice to make sure each knitter will have a pair they'll love. I've never been disappointed by a purchase from Little Skein and this one surpasses all my past orders. Pure magic.
